After doing a Rootsweb search, an item from Probate Court records of Gonzales Co. came up pertaining to the property belonging to the Lockhart heirs . In the description of the property, a Margaret Barton is mentioned as follows:
"ANDREW LOCKHART drew the following...parcel of land...beginning at a stake set in the bank of the Guadalupe river for the upper corner of a tract of land partitioned to MARAGRET BARTON."
Continuing the search on Genforum, I found that Kimber Barton who md. Elizabeth Lewis had a daughter, Catharine, who md. Charles Lockhart. Whether Charles and Andrew have any connection, I don't know, but this article (submitted by an Elmer Boggs, written by his grandfather, Charles Powell Chandler in 1878 and 1885) went on to say:
"Kimber and aunt Catharine both died [with?] living families near Gonzales Texas."
Mr. Chandler lists the children of Kimber and Elizabeth (Lewis) Barton as:
Deborah who md. Ellis Chandler
Mary who md. Clement H. Warring
Naomi,who md. Matthew White
Catharine who md. Charles Lockhart
Matilda who md. Dr. John Vevens (both died. in Platteville, WS)
Joseph who died in St. Louis, MO
Sarah who md. Willis Day.
"Kimber Barton was a wagon master in the revolutionary army and served during the war. Often heard my Grandmother [Elizabeth Lewis] tell of working in the fields during his long absence. She was a woman raised in affluence and well educated, but the trying times came on and she tilled the soil and kept the family the 7 years of bloody strife. She died in 1842 in her 94th year.
